years since january 2011. well, what about ronald reagan? president of the united states two successful four-year terms. on the domestic front, he enacted a major economic recovery package followed by an overhaul of social security. and in his second term, reagan gained a major tax reform. on the defense front, republican president reagan again with the help of the rity presided over a major increase in the defense budget, congress presided over a major increase in the defense budget, the defe including straby millions of protesters here and abroad. also commander in chief reagan gained secret aid for freedom fighters in central america, the quote unquote contras. in his second term reagan negotiated a nuclear arms control treaty with our then by senate. enemy the soviet union ratified by a democratic center. in republican reagan could work with democrats controlling both the house and for two years the senate, why can't president obama, a democrat, achieve more with republicans who control the house and his democrats who control the senate? >> there's a lot of myth about tip o'neal and
inaugural. but also theodore roosevelt, dwight eisenhower, ronald reagan. i look at it more as a form of relaxation for the president when we get to meet him. he gets to chew the fat a lit bit about past presidents. >> doris, you're a presidential expert, how do you rate president obama in the pantheon of great presidents? or just presidents? >> well, you know, when you think about the great presidents, great necessities call forth great leaders. so george washington, abraham lincoln, fdr had a huge crises to face. obama had a pretty big crisis to face. he did accomplish in health care something since presidents since teddy roosevelt have been trying to accomplish. but i think most importantly, we'll see now the fact that he's got a second term, that's really important to embolden him for what he can accomplish, and more importantly, to show that the country supported kurg a very difficult time his leadership and they wanted him back again. so i think he's got a shot. it depends a lot on what happens in the second term, if he can create -- i wish he would go in the midterms to try to

there. the last time around, we studied emotion. ronald reagan said of the bill to -- set up the bill to hire the energy commission. california became the leader in energy efficiency. we put in tax credits and policies of the public utilities commission to favor alternative energy, independent power production. which is obvious today. when they promoted code- generation it was something very novel. 30 years ago. now you have a different name for a period in his third party power production using power in a driving way to recapture the most efficient way. innovation is important. i have to also, every time we heard the word innovation, i have to put a plug in for tradition. i have a very traditional education. i spent a lot of years in silence speaking latin up in the hills, living within the medieval framework. i do respect the past. we study it. if you are grounded in tradition, you feel quite confident in change and innovation. if you are insecure, you are very reluctant to embrace the unknown. i do think we need to in our education and politics, we have to have a new appreciation f
inaugural, beat the 7 degrees it was for ronald reagan's second. >> that's right. let's talk about where the president is, as he starts his second four years in office even before the gun debate is hammering his approval. 51% approval rating which is really where george w. bush was, it's 19 points less than bill clinton was, but far below where he was. >> alisyn: yeah, you remember four years ago how exciting it was for the country as he was being sworn in and how much hope there was for hope and change and back then, the approval rating according to gallup was 68% and today, you know, after four years and obviously, it's harder to be a president than a hopeful candidate, it's at 48%. >> steve: you know what's interesting, about two or three weeks ago at the conclusion of december, the gallup poll number was, don't tell me, was 58%, so, closer to 60. what's happened in the last couple of weeks? well, you know, he did win that fiscal cliff thing and jacked up taxes on the most successful people in the country a campaign promise and experts say it looks as if his push to reining in gun vio

of this it almost seemed for a while as if it was a response to the words spoken by president ronald reagan in 1981 when he said government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem and president obama saying in this particular address providing a strong defense for the nation's entitlement programs. >> the commitments we make to each other for medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not stop our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. rich: calling for bipartisansh bipartisanship. this is very much on a surface a day for bipartisanship with reality hits in washington tomorrow it will not be the beginning of a new era with bipartisanship. back to you. ashley: thanks so much. tracy: actress and producer drew barrymore teaming up with wal-mart. launching a new beauty line in the brand. named after her production company available in wal-mart stores across the country. she chose wal-mart due to the vast reach and accessibility because she didn't want to spend money on mar
in a movie theater. a majority of americans agree with us on this. by the way so did ronald reagan, one of the staunchest defenders of the second amendment who wrote to congress in 1994 urging them, this is ronald reagan speaking, urging them to listen to the american public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufactory of military-style assault weapons. [applause] finally congress needs to help rather than hinder law enforcement as it does its job. we should get tougher on people who buy guns with the express purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this. since congress has confirmed a director of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms in six years they should confirm todd jones, who has been acting and i will be nominating for the post. [applause] and at a time when budget cuts are forcing many communities to reduce their police force we should put more cops back on the job, back on our streets. let me be absolutely clear. like most americans i believe the second amendment guar
's wonderful. >> the problem is there's no ronald reagan, there's no bill clinton, there's nobody to talk. you know, the average person thinks that we suddenly had a revenue shortfall and that's why we're running a deficit. they have no idea that we've got tons of revenue but that spending is at a ridiculous level now. 25% of gdp. it needs to get down to 17% of gdp. nobody has explained this to the public properly or convincingly. >> aunder your favorite presidet the debt has gone from roughly 10 trillion to 16 trillion. we just had the treasury numbers out yesterday. in fact, in the last year it went up again 1.3 trillion. now, this leaves an opening for the republicans. but i don't think they're smart enough to take it. and i agree with costa. actually, the president, who is a very clever political guy, they're letting him get off because he doesn't want to cut 13e7bding. mark is right. except smash the defense department. the rest of it, the entitlements, the discretionary, the little entitlements, he doesn't want to touch them. >> i don't know. was there a question in there? >> i think som
not addressing that? ronald reagan looked into the mental health institutions. why should we take whatever basic civil liberties it? guest: that as a central aspect and both parties agree that certainly, in the case of these high-profile shootings like a new town and the debbie giffords shooting and others that sometimes the problem is with the state of the shooter. we saw that in colorado, apparently as well. in many cases, you look back on these instances and it turns out to their warning signs along the way and that the mental health system, the educational system, did not have any way of taking these people in and channeling them into some kind help for themselves. how you deal with that? have you identify those people? how do you fund these programs? these are legitimate and complicated issues that will probably be part of this debate. there is no easy answer to any of this. my guess is that we will see some incremental changes, efforts to fund particular things, pilot programs that might have some broader lessons that can be applied. host: on the economy, president obama yesterday said the
? ronald reagan closed all of the mental health institutions. why aren't we looking into reestablishing them? versus taking one of our basic civil liberties away. guest: absolutely a central aspect to this -- both parties agree in the case of these high- profile shootings that sometimes the problem is with the state of the shooter. we saw that in colorado. in and he, you look back on these instances and it turns out there were warning lines and that the mental health system, the educational system did not have any way of taking these people in and channeling them in some kind of help for themselves. how do you deal with that? how do you fund these programs? all of those are complicated issues that will probably be part of this debate. there is no easy answer to any of them. what will see are a lot of incremental changes, efforts to fund things, pilot programs that might have some broader lessons. host: on the economy, president obama said the recession is over. we are on our way to the recovery. might republicans take issue with that part of the speech? guest: they will. the jobless num
's going to be similar to the past inaugurations. last time as president ronald reagan's second inaugural. ceremonies will be inside the rotunda and that is a decision that the joint committee in consultation with the presidential inaugural committee would meet on sunday after and so that everyone has the time to adjust and make plans. >> the only thing i would add to that is our goal is to have this event go forward. that being said, we are not going to put anyone in harm's way. so the real driver on the decision making process will be public safety. as you all know that were here four years ago kohl doesn't seem to slow us down so we will deal with that as it comes up. we are saying each element of this outside of the swearing and are the traditions important to the president and the first family and the country to really show what our transition of democracy is all about, so again our hope is to be able to move forward with as many as possible regardless of what the weather is. >> yes, in the middle. >> y hushovd reversal from four years ago as far as more transparency on the reversal
, we must act. it's funny, gretch mentioned ronald reagan, he once famously said the nine most terrifying words in the english language are, i'm from the government and i'm here to ten. essentially that's what the president said yesterday. if you're in the middle class, i'm from the government and i'm here to help you. >> brian: bill clinton and ronald reagan said the year of big government is over. essentially in different ways. so this is the president. the president said, let's focus on rights. he have talked about seneca falls. selma, referring to the 1965 civil rights movement, and stonewall where the gay rights movement took root in 1965. and also he talked about we're focusing again on the environment. i guess green technology. what he says is climate change, which is interesting because he's talking about gay rights. he probably wouldn't be talk being that if joe biden didn't ram rod him into it on a sunday comment that popped up. and with green technology, that's been a disaster when he ram rodded t the stimulus money. i hardly think it's settled scientific collective
basically is declaring the end of reaganism in this speech. remember, he once said that ronald reagan was historically consequential in a way that bill clinton was not. and what obama meant is that obama had changed the ideological course of the country. in 1981 in his inaugural address within two minutes, reagan had declared that government is not the solution, government is the problem. today's inaugural address was a rebuke to that entire idea. this speech today was an ode to big government. it was a hymn to big government. in his refrain, the three "we the people"'s, number one i'm going to defend what liberalism acheered, medicare, social security, medicaid. i'm not going to let any of that be chipped away and secondly, he said the vision for the future, climate change and green energy, the new expansion of liberalism in the new century and then the third element was his expansion of civil rights, where he talked about immigrants and gays and shoe-horned to gun rights under the rubric of security. he outlined the liberal agenda, the big government agenda in the future. and brit t
about second term curses that have brought down richard nixon, hampered ronald reagan, bill clinton. people forget reagan was able to get tax reform, bill clinton was able to get a balanced budget. certainly a big opportunity for the president but fully aware in the white house, a lot of challenges ahead as well, jenna. >> certainly not challenges for a father. nice to see the first family, ed, and how much the girls have grown up over the last four years. what we're looking at for the president tomorrow besides the hair styles and what everybody is wearing at the inauguration is what is he going to say? what will be the address to the nation tomorrow? you mentioned some policy challenges ahead. what are you hearing about tomorrow's address and how that might set the table, if you will, for the years to come? >> true. what i'm hearing is the state of the union address next month is really where the president will go with a deeper dive on policy, whether it be gun control, immigration reform, the debt ceiling debate. tomorrow's broad scene. his senior advisor will talk about bringing

see ourselves as if ronald reagan likes to see a city shining on the, let's befuddled most of all look at the place of gun violence of the second amendment? >> one of the most interesting things for me to see what the discussion is the idea that comes up over and over again about futility, efforts to regulate guns. one statistic is most people, almost everybody knows about guns in america is that we have 300 million people in 300 guns and that leaves lots of people to throw up their hands and think anything we do in the reagan victory site is futile. i'm actually not that pessimistic myself i hope this is one of the themes that comes up in the public discussion is to move forward for two reasons. one thing important to keep in mind if they are very concentrated and very sedentary. 10% of all people in the united states on about 80% of the guns. they're mostly middle-class, middle-age people in rural areas and hold onto their guns for a long time. on the other hand, most of the people engaging crying our teens and young adults in most criminal careers are short. one of things that means

, the turning point of this country was 32 years ago, almost to the day, when ronald reagan made a statement in his inaugural address that the solution to the government -- the government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem. if you believe that, do not the president, for heaven's sake. you had a president who was inveighing against government. presidents of both parties have basically continued this policy. we have no active programs to solve any of these problems. we know what the solutions are -- we're not going to pay for any of them. i'm telling you, sadly, it is getting worse. no matter what the agreement is in two months. we are squeezing -- the rich have gotten their way. the corporate sector has gotten their way. they do not pay. there is no money for this preschool. all the sectors alone and operate the congress, so we have lower-priced systems, exactly what you say -- overpriced systems, exactly what you say, schools that do not work. we have the least social mobility of many high-income country in the world now. we have kids locked into poverty like no o
